Default power steering relocation....

ok.... so I was looking at the car today.... and thinking that there has to be a better way to attach the fliter to the turbo than just bolting it on....

but theres a bottle in the way.... a big, black, ugly bottle there.... and it needs to be moved so I can make myself a decent intake....

Has anyone else encountered this issue when using a big turbo and a top mount manifold???? Any aesthetically pleasing options out there????? I've seen some "power steering resivoir tanks" on ebay a couple times.... but wonder how it could be done?

It's just two lines going in and out of it. And only bolted down with two small screws.

Remove power steering and find a manual rack and pinion

i made a new reservior and feed line to the pump for my install..the biggest problem was that steel l ine off the pump that does the 180* turn. i made a new flange to bolt to the pump so the new pipe drops straight down from the pump... theres a few pics here....
